Stuck in the Mud is for a revolution that has already happened. A revolution where art won, or did it? Step into the museum to see unearthed works that commemorate the art versus craft revolution.  Featuring original ceramics, textiles and audio-visual works by Connie Anthes, Eloise Rankine, Holly Macdonald, Katy B Plummer, Ashley Scott and Kuba Dorabialski among others.

Join curator and comrade Madeleine Preston as she takes you through a discussion on clay and craft vs art in the revolution that was Stuck in the Mud.

Then take a trip across the park to experimental ceramic studios in Glebe for a demonstration of ceramic techniques and gain insights into the medium of clay and the ideas that inform contemporary ceramic practice.

Clay and afternoon tea will be provided.

Book early for this special exhibition and studio tour.
Places are strictly limited.
